Join Heide Senior Curator Kendrah Morgan as she discusses the compelling work of Joy Hester, a unique figure in twentieth century Australian art. Working almost exclusively in brush and ink or watercolour, Hester created potent expressions of the human figure and face, using drawing as a vehicle to grasp life in all its complexity.
